Cricket OSCARS : Indians take the top honours

dhoniWasim Akram might have termed his captaincy as listless in the ongoing Champions Trophy and his team might have been ousted from CT but there was happy news for MS Dhoni who was not only named the captain of the ODI and TEST team of the year but also won the ODI player award. However he could not be there to take the awards surprisingly (Maybe he was avoiding the media)

Team INDIA does it but is Dhoni the best Captain ever??

INDIA has created history in NZ by winning the series 1-0 and this being first series win after 41 long years and the only 13th series win overseas makes it even more cherishable. But India’s Wellington woes still remain. Its sad that it could not be 2-0 thanks to the weather gods and debatable captaincy from Dhoni but as soon as the match was abandoned and the test drawn congratulatory messages started pouring in. India is perhaps the only country where the president congratulates the team for their victory .This was no World Cup but India being such a cricket crazy nation it is bound to happen. BCCI didn’t waste any time and they announced a cash reward of 15 lakhs to each member of the winning team. Click here for the final day pics
